Two worlds in fusion
The String Theory alpha Project
A project by
Stéphane Orlando and Stéphane Mercier

The marriage between classical and jazz has given birth to many gems, notably some string albums considered as true masterpieces by jazz giants: Charlie Parker, Stan Getz, Lee Konitz, Billie Holiday, Roy Hargrove, Wynton Marsalis, ...

The two Stephane, Orlando and Mercier, have found a chemistry that works with connivances, complementarities and above all an open-mindedness, conditions sine qua non for the success of such a project. Compositions of one and the other are intertwined in arrangements at times reassuring, at times adventurous.
